EverQuest: The Broken Mirror

A goddess wakes and gazes into a looking glass. The reflection of her true nature fractures and breaks. Even as the looking glass shatters and the world around her dissolves, Anashti Sul only looks deeper still into the fragments as they drift away. When her fractured mind glimpses her surroundings, she discovers that she is adrift in an unknown time and place where gods and goddesses maintain direct influence over Norrath. A hunger for power wells within her, having passed many an age with no power at all and an upstart sitting in her place. With a whole new realm before her, she resolves to rule again!

Anashti Sul's passage through a rift into this reality caused her to split into the two most dominant aspects of herself - life and decay. Fully aware of each aspect, she knows that both must command a plane of power lest she weaken entirely and crumble into the nothingness of The Void. And so she crafts a plot to infect the planes of Norrath with a war that threatens to collapse the balance of all life! Are you brave enough to face the might of a goddess who is ravenous to rule? Will you prevent the chaos she would unleash in all of Norrath?

7 zones... TDS was 8. I really hope their announcement is more enticing.

Watching it now -- it's kinda sorta interesting. And Holly sure is lovely.

The 34.99 is a bit cheaper than typical (and I believe they mentioned something about Full Access folks getting an additional 10%). $90 for the second edition seems a bit of a jump for what it offers.

There's some discussion about gaining 'points' doing content that can be used to customize gear that seemed interesting.

Lots of comments about the content being "75-105", but noting specific about target progression of raids.

"15+" raids.

Yeah some interesting things. Beta is open for anybody that preorders. Beta will start mid october-ish. Probably around the 21st. Expansion goes live on the 18th of November.

The 15+ raids include at least 5 raid mobs in PoH/PoF and they are still working on more raids.

Oh and if you preorder you get full access to all previous expansions once you preorder.

I think they mentioned that the raids are going to be "harder" than TDS, they didnt say mechanics or just gear wise. PoH/PoF are not part of the progression, so I'm hoping those raids will be similar in nature to ToV.

Basic is 31.49 if all access.

The level scaling zones hate and fear will have 4 main raid fights with more mechanics than the original raids so not just tank and spank. And the 3 golems ( someone who knows what that is cause I don't, might be able to speak more on it ) will be more like the one off raids in TDS.

They didn't really discuss the raids in the other zones much other than that they've not been tuned or tested yet. But that each raid will have one item that is best in slot, so continuing to do all the raids will be to a guilds advantage to do so.

The three golems would be Fright, Dread, and.... Bard. Maybe Terror.

Two out of three had DT abilities, I wonder if that will be kept.

October 1, 2015 - EQ Expansion Livestream Highlights


Re-Watch it here: http://www.twitch.tv/everquestlive/v/18681701

-Launch Date: November 18th.
-Beta: Mid to Late October.
-Delayed because they are moving into their new building and they have to set up to start.

-Plane of Health portals from Collectors Edition+ is placeable in Guild Hall, anyone can use it in your guild.
-Plane of Health zone in is in Plane of Tranquility near Plane of Nightmare, it is a crystal.

-Plane of Fear zone in is in Plane of Tranquility, on the hill behind Plane of Disease.
-Plane of Hate zone in is in Plane of Tranquility, outside of the building that the Plane of Knowledge port in is located in.

-Quellious in Plane of Tranquility, starts the expansion.

-Elidroth doing PoHate and PoFear, at least 7 of the 15 raids are in them, also has group content.
-Fear: CT, Dracoliche and the 3 Golems, Golems are like one-off raids. Hate: Innorruuk and Maestro. So far, could be more before Launch.
-Armor seems to have Base lvl 75 version, then you use points to upgrade as you want to upgrade it.

-Heroes Forge: 4 sets, 1 for Raiders, 1 for Groupers, and 2 not shown yet.

-Aristo is on Items as well as normal Spells/Patches.

-Sul Vius: Demi-Plane of Life and Sul Vius: Demi-Plane of Decay are sort of Mirrors, you get a Mirror clicky early in progression that lets you swap between these, later missions will require you to travel between versions and manipulate things.

-Each class has a Core Focused Spell, it has 6 ranks and you get a new rank as you progress through the Expansion. It will be useful and expensive to use.

-Demi-Planes count as 2 zones in the 7 zone count.

-Have to do all raid content to progress on.
-Raid Gear not tiered, want you to do it all. 1 set of Armor, 2 sets of Weapons + Non-Vis.
-No Cultural Armor.
-Many Weapon and Shield graphics.
-Each raid has at least 1 Best in Slot item for someone.
-15 Raids for now, might be more before Launch.

-2 Currencies, 1 for Raid, 1 for Group.

it's about time in the game life to tailor raids to fewer people, not just lower levels. Maybe 40 ish . . .

Oddly enough you would think that, but the top end guilds not only still field full raids but have people willing to log in just to sit on the bench. One of the guilds recruiting on the boards actually fields two different teams of raiders with different nights and times. From what it sounds like at the very minimum we'll have three new raids, the mini's, that should be doable if his statement that they are more like his Ntov raids. And who knows with the power increases they hinted at during the broadcast, and hopefully some people coming back out of the woodwork, we'll be able to try the new exp raids or maybe TDS.
